Did find out in the last 4 years the owners had a rough time keeping someone in the building, vacant 3 of those four years so I'm gonna see if we can jew him down on the price. Getting something is better than it sitting empty, right?
You would be surprised. In some places, if you own rental property and you can't fill it, the state/county will allow you to write off the full value of the rent you are not collecting against your state/property taxes. If you own a lot of properties, this will allow you to effectively not pay taxes on a significant portion of your rental income. These guys don't negotiate because they have literally nothing to lose by not renting to you. If they drop the rent amount, they see it as a double loss.

Of course, this depends specific state/county laws

Kind of tempted to get this:

But what I really wanted for $50 more was this:

But it's been out of stock for a while, unfortunately.

Because that's what's in stock. I wanted the 14.5" carbine upper.

I wouldn't bother with a 14.5" upper because it'll have to be 16" overall anyway unless you've got some NFA item brewing. I can't understand why you're such a stickler for length and think that anything over a 16" barrel is unsavory. I have no issue whipping my Socom 16 in my home and even my 20" Colt H BAR isn't an issue.

14.5" barrels are straight retarded if you value the ballistics of .223/5.56x45. The round is designed to be fired from a 20" barrel and even a 16" is pushing it.

Because I'm undercompensating.



So what's your issue with a middy?

**** that. I'd be moving to whatever state has the most lax gun laws, yay for states rights. I think a presidential veto may occur if any law like this ever made it to that point.

Okay, so it seems like you're one of those internet guys that gets off by being vague and/or general in your replies, which requires me to ask you more questions, which results in a dynamic that makes me look the noob asking for help and you the expert dispensing advice.

Seriously though, you questioned the midlength gas system when I linked to it, so what's your issue with it. I know they have the potential to be pickier with cheap or out of spec ammo, and that to some marginal degree they run a little softer and abuse the internal parts of the upper less than a carbine.

Dissipators have the same issues, Bushmaster hasn't made any attempt to fix it and DPMS doesn't care.

I'm puking everywhere right now or I'd type more. Hope you enjoy my ambiguity.

There's a significant difference between a dissapator and a 16" middy. There's barely any barrel past the gas block on a dissapator.

I'm not fighting a war, I'm building a lightweight AR to play around with. I'll take the longer lock time, lower chamber pressure when the bolt unlocks, and longer part life of the middy.

Besides, Spike's builds a good upper. It's not like I'm talking about Bushmaster.

mgeoffriau: I'm no expert, but I was in the same position as you about 6 months ago. I wanted a 16" barrel with midlength gas system, but I wanted the rifle length sight radius offered with the "Dissapator" look. I couldn't really find anyone who had anything really bad to say about the mid-length gas system on a 16" bbl, but plenty of Bushmaster Dissy haters out there. I ended up buying a lightly used BravoCompany 16" mid length with a standard weight barrel. I figured I could always go with a low-profile gas block on it and move the front site forward on the barrel in the future. The rest I've built up myself from various random parts on a CA grown Franklin Armory OLL (Off List Lower, yay CA ) It eats everything I've fed it with not a single issue, even with the cheap POS 10rnd mags I'm stuck using. As with most projects, I haven't actually followed through with it, so it sits in its as-delivered midlength form.

Had I not got the deal on the BCM upper, I would have purchased a "lightweight" profile barrel in the same configuration to save some weight. Not that the BCM is really heavy, I'd just like to go lighter.

Nice! I'm still waffling but I'm closer to pulling the trigger on that Spike's 16" LWT Middy upper. I haven't seen anything with comparable quality for that cheap.
